As we walked throuqh our hallowed halls . . .
We, the class of 1964, wish to convey our wormest and most
sincere gratitude to Miss Irene M. Sharp. Her God-given spirit of
unselfishness and ready willingness to give part of herself and
her precious time have carried us through many a crisis. In deep-
est appreciation of her constant friendship, her unfailing efforts,
and her invaluable assistance, we respectfully dedicate this, our
yearbook, to our guardian angel. Miss Irene M. Sharp.
"He is leaving his death for an example of a noble
courage, and a memorial of virtue, not only unto
young men, but unto all his nation."
To the Class of 1964:
It is with a great deal of pride that the members of the School Com-
mittee and I extend our farewell to you as students in the public
schools of Wilmington.
Your high school record has been noteworthy for its respect for the
rights of others, for its concern for the welfare of the school, and for
its solid, if not spectacular, scholastic accomplishments. For these,
and other achievements, you will be remembered with much affection
by the faculty, the school administration, and the school committee.
To all of you we extend our best wishes for success and happiness
in the years ahead.
Your very truly,
Harold S. Shea
Superintendent of Schools
Congratulations to the members of the Class of 1964 upon your success-
ful conclusion of High School. You are about to launch your respective
careers in a crucial period of national and world history. These next few
years could be the most challenging for you.
With the recent advances in technology and the flowering of automation,
none of you can stand still. Your commencement should be one of further
education and training. By this I do not infer that everyone should go to
college, but rather the non-college student should attain more education
and training that he may not be caught up in the vacuum of non-existent
Where your parents and grand-parents could move in one direction
throughout their lives, you should be prepared and trained to move in two
or three directions, should the need arise.
The faculty and administration of Wilmington High School wish you con-
tinued success in all your endeavors as the years unfold.
Bernard P. McMahon
May I remind you as you leave Wilmington High School that, as a nation,
we lead the free world in the search for a just and lasting peace. The search
thus far has not been an easy one — nor does it promise to be an easy one
in the future. Still, we know we must carry it forward. To shirk our duty
now would be to doom the world as we know it and as we would like it to
Our real strength, and the thing that will one day see us win, is the fact
that right is with us only because we fight for the right.
Let us remember that a person's race, color, or creed, does not change
his rights as a human being and as a citizen of our great country.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!

score a touchdown, which is a great feat.
A big and heavy team came into Wilmington on
that fateful Saturday. Strong and loaded with talent,
the Chelmsford Lions made it the Wildcats first loss
of the season. The winning touchdown for the Lions
was scored on a lucky break, but the Lions were too
powerful for the somewhat small Wilmington team.
North Reading: 20-12
The field was muddy, and it looked like rain, but
this didn't hold down the Wildcats. After a quick
touchdown by the Hornets, Wilmington scored twice
and led throughout the rest of the game. They ended
on top with a score of 20-12, with Mike Masse and
Joe Gray leading the linemen. Billy Ritchie led the
backs to the team's fifth victory of the season.
Beginning to feel the loss of Captain Jon Fairfield,
the Wilmington Wildcats once again went down to
defeat. The Lynnfield team proved to be too big for
the Wilmington boys, who never gave up their hope
of victory. Pat Lippielo led the team, with his great
running feats; but the power of the Lynnfield team
was too much.
It was the last game for the Seniors, and they
wonted very much to make this a win. The team put
up a great effort, but this was not enough to over-
power the Tewksbury team. The power of the Tewks-
bury eleven was too much for the Wildcats. The sea-
son had come to an end, and the Wilmington Wild-
cats has a fairly good season with 5 wins and 3
losses. The Seniors wish the Teams in the future the
"best of luck."
Thus ends another season.

Wilmington High's basketball varsity, hard hit by injuries and in-
eligibilities, had a relatively 'off' season. This team, although unable to
live up to its pre-season aspirations, never lost its determined spirit.
Led by Senior Ron Wybert (10.8 average), the only varsity starter
from lost year's team who played a full season this year, and under-
classmen Bill Ritchie (6.4 average), Dave Orndorff (10.3 average),
and Tom Pote (5.6 average), the team finished 7th in the Lowell Su-
burban League, with an overall 3-14 record. Others seniors who en-
joyed good years but were unable to complete the season were Keith
Arnold (19.3 overage), John Bevilocqua (7.3 overage) and A! Mills
(6.6 average). Over all point leader for the season was Keith Arnold
with 193, followed by Dave Orndorff (176 points) and Ron Wybert

The 1964 track season saw Wilmington get off to a slow
start, losing the first meet to North Andover, 69% to 25V4. But
the slow start was offset partly by the very able leadership of
Coach Frank Kelley, Assistant Coach Sal Albano, and the Co-
Captains, Jon Fairfield and Paul O'Leary, who were responsible
for the team's growing increase in strength.
The second meet was a trouncing for our team, Dracut scor
ing 72V2 points out of 95. But then came a high point of glory
with a triumph over Methuen. Both Billerica and Chelmsford
were exceptionally strong teams and against them our men
were able to score only 19 1/2 and 181/3 points, respectively.
Another meet with North Andover left us with an even smaller
margin of defeat than the first meet. In the Belmont Relays,
the Boys in blue scored a Fourth place in the Sprint Mediee,
defeating Billerica by half a second. On the day of the Prom,
Tewksbury defeated our team, but we came back in the Con-
ference Meet by placing third, coming in ahead of, at the end
of the season, Tewksbury, Methuen, and North Andover. We
entered the season a young team and fought hard, not always
winning, but when we did, we knew we were beating the best
our opponents had to offer.

HIGH SCHOOL BAND
The Wilmington High School Band has become one of the best bands in the area,
proving its ability throughout the whole of the year. The members outdid themselves
when they took part in a concert given at Groveton, New Hampshire. They played many
fine pieces of concert music and did much to prove' its fine ability. We wish the High
School Band success in the future and know they will continue to play music that is
pleasing to all who hear it.

Over the past two years, the National Honor Society has been an active school or-
ganization. Its Members, chosen on the basis of scholarship, leadership, character, and
service, have sponsored many activities. While working, as well as having fun, the
group benefits many students. In this way, people know that the group is really func-
Under the leadership of Mr. Vincent Gallucci, newly appointed advisor, the first year
began with a pen sale. The money raised from this new and successful project was later
put into the High School Scholarship Fund. In February, and induction ceremony for all
the new members was held during school in the auditorium. That evening all the Na-
tional Honor Society members and their proud parents were guests of the School Com-
mittee at a banquet. The new town manager, Mr. Bouchard, was guest speaker at one
of the Society's meetings in December. Later in the year, the members served as
ushers and usherettes on Open House nights. Our annual outing was a trip to the
"Pops"; no one will forget that evening.
The following year was also a very productive one for the Society. A regional con-
ference was held at Wilmington High in order to stimulate and exchange ideas among
the surrounding National Honor Societies. In February the organization conducted a
book fair, the first in the school's history. This project was overwhelmingly successful.
The banquet and annual induction ceremony for new members were held in the follow-
ing month. In the spring, the senior girls acted as usherettes at the teachers' musical
comedy, "Pushcarts." With the proceeds of this year's projects, the society established
it"^ :)wn scholarship fund. We, the seniors of '64, take great pleasure in acknowledging
our National Honor Society.

THE ETERNAL FLAME
"The torch has been possed to o new generation of Americans." When John F.
Kennedy spoke these words, both he and we seniors were opening a new chapter in the
Book of Life. He had just begun his term of office as the thirty-fifth president of these
United States; we had just begun our years at Wilmington High School as freshmen.
The pages of this chapter have been filled with many triumphs and tragedies, but at
the closing of these graduation exercises, the last words will have been written. The
dreams and the deeds of the Class of 1964, the milestones we passed successfully,
and the obstacles we have still failed to overcome have all been included. They have
left their indelible mark.
But this chapter has been completed. It is now much too late to erase or to alter
these words in any way. In addition to being complete, this chapter is also past. For
although these four years at Wilmington High School may have contained many pleas-
ant memories for most of us, we must never try to relive them. To live in the past is
truly to perish. Therefore, as we pass through these gates for the lost time, we must
not look back with regret, but forward with renewed hope. For we have not stopped
writing! On the contrary, we now go forth to write a longer, much more significant
Yes, the torch of freedom that has lit our beloved country for so long has finally been
passed on to us. We must accept it, lift it on high, and carry it proudly onward and
upward. Regardless of what career or state in life we choose, the torch will be in
our hands and with it all the cares and aspirations of the Free World. We must not,
we can not refuse this challenge and still call ourselves mature, responsible American
citizens. Nor con we keep this flame of freedom just to ourselves, but we must let
its light radiate to all people of all colors, creeds, and nationalities with all men will
we attain the true purpose of freedom.
So do not hesitate, but go forth with a more determined step. For we have the power
of right on our side. And although the minds of war and oppression and hate may
cause the flame to flicker, it shall never be extinguished; for the torch of freedom
and truth burns with an eternal flame. So come, let us take up this torch; and where
there is darkness let us bring the light of peace.
In the words of our late President: "The energy, the faith, the devotion which we
bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it — and the glow
from that flre can truly light the world. With a good conscience our only sure reward,
with history the flnal judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, ask-
ing His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth, God's work must truly
be our own."
On behalf of the Class of 1964, I wish to thank the Members of the School Com-
mittee, Mr. Shea, Mr. McMahon, Parents, Reverend Clergy, and invited guests for
their kind attention.
FOUND IN LILLIPUT
Members of the School Committee, Mr. Shea, Mr. McMahon, Parents, Reverend
Clergy, fellow classmates and invited guests:
It is a great honor for me in behalf of the class of 1964, to welcome you to our
graduation exercises. These graduation exercises bring to a close our high school days,
which by your ever present love, devotion, and patience have prepared us for our
tomorrow. Each one of us has been the object of careful consideration and guidance,-
each one has felt the warmth of your praise — even your displeasure when neccessary.
These are but a few of the rewarding features of a Lilliputian kingdom as ours,
and such was the case until in the early 1 940's a change took place which colored
not only the business world, but the educational field as well — that is, the trend
toward large scale began. The boom in the business brought larger industrial plants
and a greater labor force; larger families necessitated larger schools to alleviate the
fast growing classrooms. In the midst of all this expansion people became lost in the
crowd; they became numbers instead of names, a nonentity without identity save to
the very few whom they came into daily contact.
It is little wonder, therefore, that a few hardy individuals rebelled and in the late
1940's those who resented losing their individuality turned to the smaller establishment,
many moving to the smaller communities of the suburbs, where they could once again
experience a sense of belonging and sharing.
This same feeling carried through into the schools, where a student became once
again a name rather than a number, and in such an interested and friendly envi-
ronment could more effectually show off any special gift or talent which otherwise may
have been overlooked in the larger system.
And yet, despite the lack of size and apparent lack of big-city sophistication, there
was no concern of not being part of the larger world. On the contrary, many gifted
students of a retiring and hesitant nature, because of the additional guidance and
direction permitted in such an informal and understanding environment, undoubtedly
gained more confidence, greater poise, and the ability to perform more adequately
than ever would have been possible under more crowded and formal conditions.
Because of the feeling of security engendered by the interaction between student
and faculty, there was in the student body an "esprit de corps" — a one-for-all and
all-for-one bond, so badly needed in the world today. This loyalty extends not only to
special friends, or toward homeroom, but to the school as a whole. Each new endeavor
is whole-heartedly supported — no one is left out for any reason. Instead, each and
every one sees himself as necessary and vital to the success of the projects. This, indeed,
is a far cry from the larger school, where often times the same "clique" band together
to initiate pet projects, which are supported or not, according to their attraction to
the rest of the student body.
I, for one of very many, realize the various ways I have benefited in being a mem-
ber of the small, interested school. I should like to thank all who have so ably guided
and directed me during these past four years. I do indeed feel fortunate to be counted
among those "found in Lilliput."
TODAY, TOMORROW AND THE DAY AFTER
Today, June 7th, in the year nineteen hundred and sixty-four, we, as the current
seniors of Wilmington High School are graduating. This ceremony marks an occasion
which all of us will remember with mixed emotions. Many of us are indeed happy at
the thought of no more pencils, no more bocks. Yet we must be for a moment sad at
the thought of leaving all of the people we have become acquainted with during the
years we hove struggled toward this goal. After our departure from this high school,
we may never again see many of those whom we have come to know and to love.
Today marks the end of an important period of our lives, the period during which
we learn those things that will help us to mature and adjust to life in our modern world.
Some of us will have the opportunity to further our education, while for many, all
formal education comes to on end. Tomorrow when we waken, how will we feel, know-
ing that at last we ore on our own in a world which expects to receive more than it will
Tomorrow then, signals our entrance into the world of adults, with whom we will be
competing for jobs, seats on the subways, and recognition as individuals in our own
right. We all have an equal opportunity to succeed in whatever we attempt — or do
When we go looking for a job, is there a possibility that the color of our skin, our
nationality, our party affiliations, or our very religion will affect our chances of finding
one? It would seem from the many things we read and hear today, that such is some-
times the case. I can not imagine why one person would pass judgement on another,
determining the other to be less than a desirable working partner or social companion
for any of the reasons already mentioned.
We were all given a brain to reason with, and what an unbearable world this
would be if all of us were to come to the same conclusions, right or wrong, about
such important things as religion and politics. Certainly no one, after any amount of
due consideration, could bring suffering to another human being because he was born
in another country or with a different pigment in his skin,- for in the final analysis,
people are very much the same the world over. Fathers worry about supporting their
families. Mothers worry about giving their children all the things they never had grow-
ing up. Teenagers ore concerned with discovering who and why they are. Children are
concerned with themselves, mainly and anyone else rarely. Surely, we as Americans,
born in a country wrought with the sweat and blood of people from all over the world,
should be able to be, if not loving, at least tolerant of those from other countries and
of races different from ours.
During the last few months, our Senate has been the scene of constant debating over
o Civil Rights Bill. This bill, if signed into low, will provide for the legal enforcement of
our right as individuals to live where we choose, to eat where we wish, and to work
at any job we are capable of doing. How tragic it seems that we must legislate to
bring about the acceptance of two concepts which should already be considered as
truths and thus practiced by everyone — specifically, the right of each of us to be
free, and our right to equality in the eyes of the law and our fellow man.
In many areas and in many hearts, these basic concepts, upon which our country was
founded, are not held to be true. As a result, today's adults face many problems which
should never have developed. Tomorrow these same problems will still exist, and we
as tomorrow's adults, will hove to stand up to them and attempt to find their solutions.
There is always hope, however. Perhaps the Day After will bring with its dawn the
answers to these and other problems facing our nation. Meanwhile, for today and
tomorrow, you and I can use our education in an all-out effort to make this world a
better place to live in. May we all hove the strength of character to fight for freedom,
justice, and equality until the Day After arrives.
We, the Class of 1964, of Wilmington High School in the town of Wilmington, and
in the state of Massachusetts, being of sound mind and body, do hereby publish our
last will and testament.
To the Faculty — we leave a long sigh of relief in seeing us depart and go into the
"worlds of business and college." Also — an incoming batch of new faces and names
to memorize, along with roomfuls of paper planes and spitballs.
To the Juniors — we leave our places of prestige along with an ever-present, empty
feeling of having no "Big Brothers" to look up to, have fun with, and enjoy. Also —
best wishes for a senior year full of activities and memorable times.
To the Sophomores — we leave two more grueling years of pampering, detention,
To the Freshmen — we leave our follies and advice for a united class with an abun-
dant treasury to fulfill the needs of the next three years.

lab equipment that won't work; the enjoyment you will derive from friendships that
arise from the common tortures to which you will be subjected; and the friendly at-
mosphere of this school. To those teachers who have a deficiency of them, he leaves
smiles in unlimited number; and to his beloved Math teacher, Mr. Kelley, he leaves
some new jokes, as his are somewhat antiquated. He also admonishes students to con-
tinue in his tradition of novel solutions to Math problems so that your teachers do not
become bored with the same old solutions.
Trudy O'Hare leaves Mr. Sullivan one blown glass barometer so that he can

her favorite lunch surprises to Judy, Gillie, and members of our WHS. Also, a 1965
station wagon to Pete, Marco, and Jeff to get to their penthouse in Billerica for prac-
tice, provided they come and get her first.
The closeness of graduation not only sends our thoughts to the future but it also
causes us to think back on the events, the fun, and the struggles of the last four years.
We entered the high school on Wednesday, September 7, 1960. As freshmen we were
a bit awed by the different courses and the vastness of the whole school. We started
our activities as a class by holding our first class meeting. Under the watchful eyes of
Mr. Hogan and Mrs. Heath, our doss advisors, we elected our officers. Jon Fairfield
was chosen President; Richard Wood, Vice-President; Leone Monroe, Secretary; and
Linda Berry, Treasurer.
In September, 1961, the class of 1964 once again entered Wilmington High, a little
wiser and ready to handle more responsibilities. Jon Fairfield was once again elected
our President and Linda Berry, our Treasurer. Michael Masse was our newly elected
Vice-President and Beverly Barcellos our Secretary.
Now that we were sophomores, the officers had a little more to do than collect
dues. They now had the responsibility of running a dance. We were allotted the Christ-
mas Dance. On December 20, Rudolph's Riot was presented in the gaily decorated red
and green gym. It was the most successful dance held by our class and Santa even
showed up to wish us well.
After a long summer, we anxiously returned to Wilmington High looking forward to
a fun-filled Junior year. Linda Berry, Beverly Barcellos, and Michael Masse were re-
elected Treasurer, Secretary, and Vice-President respectively. Richard Wood was
chosen as our new President.
November brought us our first dance of the year, a Thanksgiving dance entitled the
"Cornstalk Caper." The gym's most striking piece of decoration being the giant Corn
Then on the evening of March 15, the Junior Class held its own Junior Prom. Valerie
Camber and Gary Phillips and their committees worked hard to moke the gym a true
'Evening in Paris." Pot Luken was chosen Queen, and her attendants were Joan Bishop,
Dawne Burns, Laurie McCabe, Lesile Pinto and Maureen O'Reilly.
May was the most important month for the Juniors for that was the time for Junior
Week. During Junior Week, the biggest project was the Junior Variety Show. On May
9 and 10, the Class of 1964 presented the Musical Merrymakers in "Rehearsal Time."
After a successful variety show. Junior Week started with a bang in more ways than
one. Every day of the week was a special day. One day was "Crazy Day" when all
the Juniors were to dress in some weird outfit. Another day was set aside for everyone
to get dressed up, and still others were designated by a special color.
Finally the week ended with a banquet to which all our parents were invited. At
the banquet, all the Juniors who achieved the highest average in their subjects were
awarded certificates of merit. The banquet was ably handled by our President with an
excellent meal provided by the cafeteria and served by the sophomore girls.
At the end of May, the Junior Class was honored when Dianne Mortelliti, Barbara
Burnham, Mary Deslongchamps, Joan Bishop and Janice Finney were awarded blazers
for being the top five members of their class.
When we reentered school for our final year on September 4, 1963, we at once were
infected with an incurable disease called "Senioritis." Once again we held elections,
and once again Richard Wood was chosen our chief executive with Linda Berry,
Treasurer. Gary Phillips was chosen our new Vice-President and Miles Anderson, our
We immediately began work on our class dance, "Senior Spookynanny" held on
October 31, 1963. The gym was decorated to represent on ole graveyard, and a real
live gypsy fortuneteller, Becky Hartwell, added to the atmosphere.
Richard Wood was chosen to be our representative at the State House on Student
On the evening of January 3 and 4, the Seniors brought the "Class Ring," a play in
three acts, to Wilmington High, under the direction of Miss Irene Sharp and Miss Mari-
The biggest social event of our school career was the Senior Prom, "Tahitian Twi-
light." The gym was transformed into a Polynesian Paradise. Mr. Saba made the
biggest contribution to the decoration scheme when he presented us with an eight-foot
high, wooden Tiki, water fountain. What a beautiful addition to an already heavenly
Janice Finney was chosen Queen, with Louise Henderson, Leslie Pinto, Marlene Galka,
and Janice DeFinna as attendants.
Our class banquet took place on Thursday evening, June 4, in the North Intermediate
Cafeteria with Richard Wood conducting the ceremonies.
On Sunday afternoon, June 7, we, the Senior Class of 1964, will receive our diplo-
mas. Now that we are about to graduate we would like to thank our parents, teachers,
and advisors through whose self-sacrificing aid and advice we are prepared to leave
Wilmington High School with many wonderful memories to help face the future with
courage and knowledge and to contribute usefully to society.
